Post  Kim on Tue Jul 05, 2016 3:02 pm

My dial-up service was too challenged load this as I relieved it, but I was able to copy the text and post it here. It's a little shuffled, but most of the content is included.

I'm planning on being there with my cameras, and figured there might be some guys who may be interested:

If the wind changes and judges cannot move to the needed spot on the circle, the judges are encouraged to allow the flyer the best “call” the judge can make

Kim, thanks for taking the time to download and post. I found the flyer both informative and funny.  I followed the link to the Paducah aero molders site and read their latest newsletter. I did not find any additional information on this event, although they are going to have face painting and are looking for additional volunteers. ( I wonder if they do classic "nose art" or just HelloKitty and tigers?) I also found in the upcoming events a fly in sorta near you. It was on 6/23 - 6/26.....don't know if you were able to make your road trip a "trifecta" of Small, Sig and the Cape?
6/23/2016 - 6/26/2016 -- Cape Girardeau, MO (C) 5TH ANNUAL MID-AMERICA FLY-LOW-IN. Site: 441 Gizmo Ln.
It looks to me the author of the flyer copied and pasted the dates and rules from another event, as I was confused on the dates listed as Aug 20 & 21 in the header, and Saturday the 16th and Sunday the 17th in the body of the text.

Yeah...shows how much I proof read stuff before forwarding it! I'll give Charlie a call this evening, but I'm sure it's as you figured, a copy of their previous flyer/rules.

I had some other stuff going on during the Cape club's fly-in, but may get out there for the next one. Hoping for some reasonable temperatures for the Paducah contest, as I'm gonna try to take my Uncle Wayne over to check it out...
